At its inception, Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar "conceived and implemented a unique system of extension education for the transfer of its technology to the farming community". "This set up has been highly commended by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) Review Committee (1978) under the chairmanship of late Dr. M.S. Randhawa" and was admired at the national level. The Directorate of Extension Education acts as a bridge between the researchers and the farming community and the other beneficiaries to provide feedback. Therefore, the role of Directorate of Extension Education is in two ways i.e., transfer of technologies from scientists to the farming community through field functionaries and to find out the troubles of the field to be passed on to various research departments for finding their solutions.


The Directorate of Extension Education is works under the supervision of Director, who is assisted by Associate Director (Farm Advisory Services); Associate Director (SNIATTE); Manager (ATIC); Associate Director (Publications); Joint Director (Farm Information and Communication Services); Regional Director (EEI, Nilokheri, Karnal) and Senior Coordinator/Coordinator (Krishi Vigyan Kendras). The decisions regarding policies and future plan related to extension programmes are taken by the Extension Education Advisory Committee which is a statutory body

            The Directorate has a statutory role to play with regard to extension. Extension service is a vehicle, which carries scientific agricultural technology interventions developed of the Research Stations/ Departments to the farm for the overall benefit of the farming community. This noble activity facilities in bridging the identified technological gaps existing with the farmers. The ultimate goal of this important function of the university is to enhance the sustainable net income of the farmer by taking all the enterprises on the farm into consideration, integrating them and treating the whole farm as one unit. 

This major function of extension is accomplished through dissemination of farm information, training of farmers and extension functionaries, educating the farmers through field activities such as demonstrations, field visits, field days and farm advisory services etc.

Awards and Recognitions

Dr. I. S. Sheoran was awarded Hari Om Ashram award for team research, Rafi Ahmed Kidwai award and NAAS Fellow : -

Infrastructural Development

  • The department has a Botanical Garden spread over an area of 10.5 acres with rich biodiversity. The department has done pioneering work in conserving the indigenour local species of plant and also introduction of exotic specis (approximately 600) from other places. Various native and exotic trees, shurbs, herbs, climbers, aquatic plants, cacti and succulents have been collected and maintained for imparting knowledge to our students as well as related scientists. Flower shows are organized from time to time.
  • The department has 9 screening houses near the college building.
  • The department has developed 20 salinity micro plots to determine phyto-remediating potential of halophytic flora and 24 lysimeter have been installed in field to determine the transpirational potential of trees having importannce in bio-drainage.
  • Experimental farms spread over 25 acres have been developed to evaluate bio-drainage potential of trees to improve waterlogged soils.

Package and Practices

system having Eucalyptus tereticornis as a strip plantation should be established on the water logged soils. In this model north to south field boundary is converted into 2.6 m wide and 45 cm high raised bund on which two rows of trees can be planted. The intervening space is left for the crops with minimum of shade effect due to the north-south direction of bunds� initiated by Drs. O.P. Toky, Rajiv Angrish and J.C. Kaushik included in the HAU Package of Practices.
